Label Of The Month

Monochrome_Editions_edited.jpg

We have been immense fans of everything Christoph Berg has put his mind to for over a decade now and so we were thrilled to read that he was starting his own label. The new imprint, (very appropriately named) Monochrome Editions was launched late last year with the first edition being his incredible new LP 'Tape Anthology Vol 1' (which found it's way to the number 2 spot on our albums of the year list). Wanting to buck the trend of poorly executed vinyl Christoph chose only to work with the best. Mastering was done by Stephan Mathieu and the lacquer was cut by the legendary Loop-O. Finally, the album was pressed by the fine folks at Pallas. 

Those running or thinking of starting a label should definitely take note of Christoph's approach here as the end result was the most crystal clear vinyl in our collection. Order the first Monochrome Edition here.

Artist Of The Month

Back in 2008, we came across an album called 'Night Falls' and our musical journey was forever changed. The LP with its Deep dark soundscapes intermingled between sparse minimal worlds of ambiance, was released by Berlin-based artist Hecq who is now more commonly known by his output under his given name Ben Lukas Boysen. 

Those who follow Erased Tapes (or Ad Noiseam) will be no stranger to this amazing musician's output. His albums have turned up on multiple end-of-year-lists on our site and will, no doubt, be featured again come December as we measure all else against his amazing new LP 'Mirage'.

Releasing 'Gravity' On Ad Noiseam back in 2013 and the genre-defining 'Spells' three years after that Ben has moved from strength to strength. Our advice? Do not look past his amazing soundtrack work released on the amazing Hymen Records...... Read More
